Blacklock is a modern version of the Great British chophouse. Set in an old electricity substation on the site of London"s oldest meat market. We take the best meat in the country from the award-winning farmer and butcher Philip Warren in Cornwall. We cook chops simply over our real charcoal grill with a little help from vintage Blacklock irons and serve it all up alongside cocktails for a fiver and wine on tap in our atmospheric subterranean chop mecca.

Prime rib... That is all

Just as good as the soho original - I went with colleagues for the Monday night butchers price special and everyone was very pleased with our choices (big rib to share and two all ins).

Great ambiance, lovely staff who were flexible when I had to move the table, and not too dear either - even with wine.

I’ve booked to go back already!

Delicious food, tasty cocktails, nice atmosphere and very healthy portions... only downside it was a little bit too loud to hear the person on the other end of the table.

This is the 3rd time I have been. It is a fantastic restaurant. Great value meat with the chop plate at affordable prices. The bread under the meat after absorbing all the meat juice was delightful. All washed down with excellent value red wine and superb cocktails. I love this place.

A quite simply wonderful experience! Celebrated a farewell dinner and the Blacklock team made it extra special with personal touches throughout the meal. The food was fantastic. The bites are a must to get the taste buds going. Then sharing the small chops is ideal. For the main event, we shared a sizable porterhouse and prime rib (all big cuts available to order by weight depending so ideal for any size group), both perfectly cooked and superb! Service was outstanding, my third visit to this branch, but still very impressed! Certainly worthy of a recommendation. Will no doubt be back again very soon!

We went on a Monday and were pleasantly surprised to hear they have a special deal Mondays where Steak is sold at £5 per 100g for even their best cuts. Ordered a 1kg Porterhouse between 2 of us. Was just delicious. Add to that really great pricing on drinks, Old Fashioned cocktails for £5 each, such great value.

Yes the pictures are accurate. What an incredible find. If you are a foodie and a meat eater this place is a must. The place was packed and had a lot of energy but yet the service was very attentive and quick on taking orders and having us seated. From the hosting staff to the wait staff including the bar tenders everyone was friendly and genuinely nice.

The Old Fashioned I had at the bar is one of the best I’ve ever had - not too sweet! We ordered their chop plate and all of the meats were fantastic. I would highly recommend a visit to this place if you are a meat eater.

The only downside was that I left my camera at the table but I was able to contact the management and they had it which turned out to be a great thing.

Ambience:-The place is noisy and feels bit claustrophobic as its in a basement however ideal for a date.
Food/Price :- Also the food was on a pricer side againts the quality which was offered so we didnt feel value for money. That doesnt mean the food was of bad quality, its just that the price wasnt justified for what we got. Probably it might be just the dish we ordered.
Service:- The service however was first class.
Overall:- overall I will definitely recommend this place once.

Generous portions of meat.
Good price
Unfortunately TOO loud. You need to screen to each other and ended up with pain throat. No idea why a restaurant for dinner at 8:00pm is this loud. Totally killed the ambience

Had the Porterhouse cut for medium rare. Very good quality of meat.
Marrow Garlic sauce is divine too.
Service was great, friendly but not pretentious.
Good place for dinner with friends.
A bit too noisy when the place is full as I couldn't really hear what my friend said...

Food was incredibly tasty and even good value. The meat was very high quality and the sides and the bread under the chops were both ingenious and tasty. A fair wine list adds to the meal and the whole experience was delicious. One of my new top restaurants

Service was good, but staff kept tripping over the back of one of the chairs as they have the tables too close together. This was not a restaurant for a quiet conversation.

Arrived early (around 6pm) and place was quiet. Very efficient service, waiter advised on shared meat platter and some additional large cuts. Meat was well cooked and excellent quality, the bed of rosemary bread absorbed the juices and was a nice touch, delicious! Place got much busier and was full by 7pm but service remained impeccable - friendly and efficient. Full, but wanting more we discussed some additional cuts with the waiter and he suggested the 6 eye rib-eye. It was perfect. For dessert we ordered 2 cheesecakes. The witer bought the entire oven dish with closer to 3 portions and encouraged us to help ourselves and finsh it of, which we did eagerly. After such a great meal, the bill was surprisingly reasonable and we will definitely be back.

For meat lovers, a real treat. Lots of well priced chops and great sides. Loved the £5 cocktails. Staff were excellent and gave us some free chips because they'd made an extra one by accident. Couldn't fault it except it was quite loud - well we were next to quite a loud table anyway!!!
